What Our Guest Talked About
Dazmonique’s experiences in finding outlets for fresh food as a student with only a bicycle for transportation helped her realize the need for additional services for fresh food for other people in Detroit with transportation issues, and that’s how her idea for a mobile grocery store came to be.
In this episode, Dazmonique tells us how she and her co-founders are working to continue to educate people about the benefits of fresh food while completing the arduous process of bringing their vision of a mobile grocery store to fruition, fulfilling a need to provide high quality, yet lower-priced foods to everyone in Detroit.
